Composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings, The Silence of the Lambs, The Aviator, Hugo, The Hobbit) is set to reteam with David Cronenberg on the upcoming sci-fi thriller Crimes of the Future. The film is written and directed by Cronenberg and will star Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Kristen Stewart, Scott Speedman, Welket Bungué, Don McKellar and Lihi Kornowski. The movie is set in the not-so-distant future where humankind is learning to adapt to its synthetic surroundings and follows a performance artist who has embraced “Accelerated Evolution Syndrome”, sprouting new and unexpected organs in his body and has turned the removal of these organs into a spectacle for his loyal followers. Robert Lantos (Being Julia, The Song of Names) is producing the Serendipity Point Films and Argonauts production. Shore has previously collaborated with Cronenberg on numerous films over the last four decades, including Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, A History of Violence and Eastern Promises. Crimes of the Future is set to start production this summer and will be distributed in the U.S. by Neon. A release in 2022 is expected. (Deadline)
